Cliff Lede makes moves in Priorat

Californian producers Lede Family Wines has entered into a “joint partnership” with one of Priorat’s leading producers Mas Doix it has been announced.

Owned by brothers Ramón and Valentí Llagostera, the Spanish winery was founded in 1998 in the village of Poboleda in the northern part of Priorat.

They produce wines using the region’s traditional grapes, Grenache and Carignan, with some vineyards they farm being 100 years-old.

Lede Family Wines’ primary estate meanwhile, Cliff Lede Winery, is located in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley.

Canadian founder Cliff Lede then also acquired the Savoy Vineyard in Anderson Valley in 2011.

Lede commented: “As a company, we made a decision to explore opportunities outside of California.

“After the first meeting with Ramón and Valentí, I knew we shared the same values and philosophy on family, wine and business. It just felt right.”

The Llangostera brothers added: “On the eve of our 20th anniversary of Mas Doix, we thought it may be time to engage a partner for the next chapter. Our wines and complementary interests connected us but it was our core ideals and common vision for the future that made the Lede family the right partner.”

Lede Family Wines has been approached for further comment.
